Newest version: 1.3
Newest version release date: 16 June 2012
Supported platforms: Symbian^3
SwipeUnlock modifies lock screen of your phone so it appears like the lock screen of the MeeGo OS.
MeeGo OS offers very interesting experience for any user. Mostly due to innovational Swipe interface. All actions with this interface are performed using gestures. We liked this idea and we tried to bring this feature of the Swipe onto Symbian platform.
After installing the app firstly you should run it.
Let’s look the app’s main window that contains app’s settings.
The application works – toggles the application’s work. If you want to see common lock screen just turn this option off.
Run at startup – toggles the application’s automatic start at the phone startup.
Picture – allows you to select the background image that will be shown on the lock screen.
Resize mode – scaling mode of the background image. Here are options which are available:
To get max quality result we recommend you to use prepared images with 360x640 pixels in size.
Show when pressed - this option allows you to select one or several keys to show the lock screen.
Sensitivity - allows you to set up gesture sensitivity for each axis.
Gesture - gesture that will be used to unlock the phone. Following options are available:
Standard lock screen is shown by pressing the Menu key (if the phone is locked). SwipeUnlock by default also uses this key. But also the following options are available:
You can select any of these keys. But you should get in account that your phone may have not some of these.
Next there is selection of 5 applications which will be available directly from the lock screen. To use this feature move the screen a bit and hold it for a few seconds. In the bottom of the screen the shortcuts panel will appear.
After selecting all needed options you can close the application – it is already working in the background. To see the app’s work result just press the button that you’ve selected when phone is locked.
Without SwipeUnlock application you see common lock screen.
Lock screen of SwipeUnlock looks like this:
Besides general information about date, time, cellular communication network type and battery, SwipeUnlock displays the last missed event.
Supported events’ types: missed call, missed message, missed e-mail (if letter has been received with built-in mail client).
Only one event is displayed at the moment. By pressing the event’s notifier you can go to the relevant application that handles this event’s type.
|If you’re using built-in music player or radio you have ability to control it directly from the SwipeUnlock lock screen. You can switch music tracks (or radio-stations) or pause the music player.|
|To unlock the phone you need to made corresponding gesture. We prepared small video clip so you can see how this really looks.|
SwipeUnlock modifies lock screen so it appears like the lock screen of the MeeGo OS. Use gestures to unlock your phone!
Small remark: Application might work with slight delays after installion (or changing of settings). But some time later (5-10 minutes usually) application completely replaces built-in lockscreen.
|Attention: All the technical questions that are related to the buying and downloading the application you should care out with the Nokia Store shop technical support. The developer has not ability to handle such questions.|
